Annual "Ross County Farmer Share Breakfast" Helps Shows True Profits


The annual "Ross County Farmer Share Breakfast" was Thursday morning.

Kaitlyn Meeker, president of the Ross County Farm Bureau, says the event was started to have the public pay the the same amount for the meal that the farmer receives for growing the grain and meat. The breakfast is only $3.

The event also highlights local farm youth, with FFA students cooking, serving, and cleaning. Meeker says Future Farmers of America are still strong in Ross County, though dying off elsewhere.

The breakfast event is also strong in the county. She says it started several years ago as a big Farm Bureau statewide initiative, but in any other counties that are still doing it, it's not the same.

The breakfast is also an opportunity for farmers to network.

Meeker says coming up in summer is the "Made on the Farm" event to support drug-free clubs, and in June the Ross County Farm Bureau will hold a public policy meeting on land rights and more.
